Default Lauscha Clear Soft - rods cracking in the flame?!

Good morning,
I bought 1/2 kilo of Lauscha clear soft recently and don't like it at all, because it is cracking in the flame and pieces flying around like bullits - although I slowly warmed it till glowing...

Does anyone have the same problem? Did I catch part of a bad batch maybe?

Any info is welcome.

Have a nice weekend - Kathrin

I bought Lauscha clear last year, having heard people rave about it. I found it difficult to work with, and not nearly as clear as Zephyr or even Effetre Super Clear. I haven’t even used up what I bought of the Lauscha. Not impressed. Zephyr is expensive, but I’ve started buying seconds from Double Helix, which makes it affordable, and I don’t see any difference between the seconds and the regular Zephyr.
